The PEFTOK (Philippine Expeditionary Force To Korea) was one of the belligerents of the Allies during Korean War which has a 7,000 strong manpower. One of the units of the PEFTOK, was the 10th Combat Battalion.

These guys were tough and one of the UN units to repel a large-scale attack of the Chinese Intervention.
On the Battle Of Yultong Bridge as seen here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Yultong_Bridge), the Old and young men who fought as the Philippine Scouts last WW2 now went to Korea to support the UN forces.
